MATH - 506

Week 14 February 1-5/21

This week we are focusing on Fractions!

N5.5 Demonstrate an understanding of fractions by using concrete and pictorial representations to: 
create sets of equivalent fractions 
compare fractions with like and unlike denominators.

A Numerator is the number of parts we have;
A Denominator is the total parts in whole.

Week 13 January 25 - 29/21

**There is no PDF available for this week**

This week we are focusing on Identify, create, and analyze single transformations of 2-D shapes (with and without the use of technology). (SS5.7) 

Single Transformations of 2-D shapes reflection

Reflection:  When a shape is reflected in a mirror we see a reflection image.  The line segment that joins a point to its image is perpendicular to the line of reflection.  A shape and its image have opposite orientations, or face opposite ways.  A reflection is sometimes called a flip because when a shape is reflected, it is flipped over.

Click on link to practice Drawing Reflections:

Practice drawing reflections on a piece of paper.  Take a picture of your drawings and send them to or text a picture to 306 914 0236

Single transformations of 2-D shapes - rotations

 When we rotate an image, we turn a shape on a point of rotation.  We can turn or rotate the image clockwise or counterclockwise.  The point of rotation will be on one of the vertices of the shape.

Think about the hands on a clock.  When the minute hand moves from the 12 to the 3, it rotates a quarter turn clockwise.

When the minute hand moves from the 12 to the 6, It rotates a half turn clockwise.

When the minute hand move from the 12 to the 9, it rotates a three-quarter turn.

Please click the link below to watch how to rotate objects.

Now that you have seen how to do rotations, on a piece of paper draw a triangle.  Label the vertices A, B and C.  Rotate the triangle a half turn clockwise, and label the vertices on the image.

Draw a square and label the vertices A, B, C and D.  Rotate the square 3/4 turn clockwise and label the image and its vertices.

Draw a shape (not a circle) of your choice. Choose a vertex to rotate your shape 1/4 turn counterclockwise.  Label your image and the vertices.  

Once you have finished, take a picture and email or text the picture to or 306-914-0236.

Week 12 January 18 - 22/21

SS 5.5 & 5.6   


Edge:  a line segment between faces.

Face:  any of the flat surfaces of an object.

Vertex:  the corner of an object

Side:  In a 2 dimensional shape, one of the line segments, or edges, in a 3 dimensional shapes, one of the faces

Symmetrical:  A shape is symmetrical when it can be folded so that one part matches the other part exactly.  The fold line is the line of symmetry. 

Look at the pictures below for further explanation.

Online Assignments:

Week 11 January 11 - 15/21

Shapes & Space: Intersecting, Perpendicular, and Parallel Lines. 

Attribute- a way to describe a shape.

Example: the lengths of the sides and parallel sides are two attributes. 

Intersect- when two sides meet, they intersect at a point called the vertex.

Vertex- the point where two sides of a shape meet. 

Parallel- two lines that are always the same distance apart and will never meet. 

This YouTube Video will explain more in depth.

Week 10 - January 11 - 15 / 2021

This week we are focusing on solving equations using variables (Outcome P5.2)

What is a variable?  A variable in math is our unknown.  We usually represent this unknown with a letter or a symbol.  For example, in the following equation, the variable is the letter c.
c + 2 = 5 
c - 2 = 5 - 2
c = 3

I can check my answer by substituting my answer for the variable.

3 + 2 = 5

If I get the right answer, then I know the value of the variable.

Week 9 - January 4 - 8 / 2021

Long Division

This week is focused on Long Division: strategies for dividing 3-digit whole numbers by 1-digit whole numbers.

8÷3=2 remainder 2
368÷3= 122 r2

Week 7/8 - November 23 - December 4 / 2020

As I'm catching up to posting weekly, I am combining weeks in each post. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Week 7

"Breaking Apart" Strategy:

This multiplication Strategy has you breaking apart factors into smaller factors. 

As you can see, the 8 is broken into two factors that still adds up to 8
You can split it any way you want. whichever is easier for you.
2 x 4 x 5
Hold the 2 while you multiply 4 x 520
Now multiply the with 20. It looks like this 2040

Watch the YouTube video
Practice with 9 x 7

Week 8

Area Model Strategy:

Week 6 November 16-20

**There is no printable copy for this week's learning package. 

This week, the focus continues with multiplication. Start with Factoring and finishing off the week with Halving and Doubling

Objective: Watch the video, then do the assignment right after. 

Day 1

1. Factoring: Reviewing Multiplication

Online Assignment:

Day 2

2. Skip Counting for Multiplication

Online Assignment:

Day 3

3. Halving and Doubling Rule


 ❇️ This strategy will only work if one or both factors are:

                1. A even number   OR

                2. Ends with a 5 or 0. 

The poster may also help you understand: 

If you halve one factor, then the other factor must double up.
  • ex. The is cutting in half to 2, then 2 is cutting in half to 1
  • At the same time, the 9 is doubling up to 18, then 18 is doubling up to 36.
Think: which is easier to solve for you?
a. 4 9
b. 2 x 18
c. 36

What is a pronoun? 

A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. Pronouns are important in English. They are some of the first words we learn: I, you, he, she, it. There are different kinds of pronouns for different situations: subject pronouns, object pronouns, possessive pronouns, and reflexive pronouns. Instead of Sara, we can say she. Instead of those guys, we can say them. Instead of the sun, we can say it.
